Our order was delivered promptly and a few minor problems were dealt with efficiently. We would certainly order from them again.

Bought a Makita DMR112 Site Radio. Great Price. Free Next Day Shipping which included Northern Ireland unlike many other companies). Well packaged. Came with UK adapter plug (unlike ones coming in from EU). All in all a faultless service. A+ HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

The internet service is excellent and so is the delivery but the telephone service is lacking.
I prefer to buy over the phone but on no less than four occasions my call was either cut off or unanswered.
I realised that on line sales are seen as the future but there is still a large body of people out there who prefer a more traditional approach and do keep up with a paper catalogue if only once a year
